Evangeline Beach Shorebirds

August 23, 2015

I made two trips to Evangeline Beach this year in search of peeps; Semipalmated Sandpipers, Semipalmated Plovers, White-rumped Sandpipers and Least Sandpipers. The Semipalmated Sandpiper probably comprises over 95% of the flocks. These birds are collectively known as peeps.

Two Peregrine Falcons scattered the flock on my first first visit ending the display.

Evangeline Beach

The beach is reminiscent of the surface of Mars except for the telltale fog and blue sky.
